    date with MidletPascal

    I'm very sorry I am not familiar with Delphi...you could perhaps wait for someone better to come on here and help with your problem...or if you can put down in "Pseudo" code what you are trying to I might be able to help...sorry a novice at programming but have been using MIDlet Pascal for a while now...

    I think the short answer is probably. The long answer is, it depends on how MidletPascal stores dates. If it uses a number format like Delphi, then the answer is yes. Ultimately, it makes sense to store dates as numbers as they are more compact (byte wise) than a string so I would say the answer is almost certainly yes. You just need to find out what format MidletPascal uses and adjust the maths accordingly.

    Sorry I can't be more specific, but I've never actually used MidletPascal.

    date with MidletPascal

    Right...beginning to get this a little more;

    The date functions are as follows in MIDlet Pascal;

    GetYear();
    GetMonth();
    GetWeekDay();
    GetYearDay();

    All are integers...

    There is no DateToStr()

    But there is an IntegerToString();

    ...There is no RealToString(); for floatingpoint/real numbers as far as I know in MP if your using real numbers you need to use the function Trunc(); to convert it without the decimal...

    In delphi DateToStr (Date) show You YEAR-MONTH-DAY of this day.
    DateToStr (Date + 4000) show You 4000 days forward and
    DateToStr (Date - 4000) show You 4000 days back.
    If You want to do the same in MidletPascal must You join GetDay,GetMonth and GetYear but how.

    I dont know... not experienced enough but can only suggest you post your code on here and see if anyone could offer a work around
